senior hamas official who said that at 9:00 p.m. cairo time, 10:00 p.m. eastern standard time, that there would be an announcement in cairo, by an official, from the egyptian government and from hamas, announcing some sort of agreement for at least a temporary cease-fire. however, we're hearing from other hamas officials that israel has yet to agree to this proposed cease-fire and the israelis are saying there is nothing as of yet. but the idea is rather than send out broad guidelines for a period of peace and calm, they just want to see if both sides can keep the peace. now, one of the concerns here is that it is not just hamas who is operating in gaza, there are other groups like islamic jihad, affiliated with iran, even smaller splinter groups out there that hamas doesn't necessarily control completely. and therefore that's why they want to give this -- this initial period to see if the peace can indeed or quiet or calm can hold. >> ben, in terms of the entire region, and we're standing sort of by a map which i want to show our viewers, this and is of israel, you've got the

in this process. i will carry this message to cairo tomorrow. i will also be consulting with president abas in ramala. let me also say to echo the prime minister, i'm very pleased that the iron dome defense system is performing so well. our partnership in support of this system represents america's enduring commitment to the safety and security of the israeli people and to israel's right to defend itself. but no defense is perfect. and our hearts break for the loss of every civilian israeli and palestinian and for all those who have been wounded or who are living in fear and danger. i know today was a difficult day. and i offer my deepest condolences to the loved ones of those who were lost and injured. in the end there is no substitute for security and for a just and lasting peace. and the current crisis certainly focuses us on the urgency of this broader goal. so in the days ahead the united states will work with our partners here in israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of israel, improves conditions for the people of gaza and moves toward a

and egyptian leaders in cairo, egypt. coming up for you at 7:15, what egypt's president is saying this morning about the possibilities for a cease-fire. >>> it's 7:07. we want to check in with sal for an update on a terrible situation on caltrain, a train fatality. >> that's right. caltrain, major delays this morning because train number 103 northbound hit a pedestrian in palo alto, a lot of people were taken off the train and they are being put on buses. a lot of these people are very late to work and the train is stopped here on the tracks northbound. now, the southbound trains are moving through. but it is going to be pretty slow going and caltrain has major delays. there are those people who are -- i don't know what they are waiting for but perhaps they are waiting to get on the bus here that's gonna take them to the next caltrain station. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. that's bocked up all the way -- backed up beyond the 880 overcrossing. that major problems getting into san francisco once on the bridge itself. we talked about 101 and highway 1, a little bit of slowing he
in cairo, that's where the cease-fire discussions are taking place. and he said that hamas is not calling for any ground war or escalation, but despite the fact that hamas over the last year has fired more than 700 rockets into israel, he said israel is the aggressor in this conflict. listen to what he said. >> we will not accept any -- they are the ones who attack. a cease-fire will cure when our demands are met. >> just what are those demands? two key points that the hamas wants to make. they want an end to what they described as targeted assassinations and also want an end to the israeli blockade of gaza. shepard, in another late-breaking development, we are just getting word now that the israeli military striking in gaza a short time ago hit a bank with ties to hamas. so, the blood shed does continue. shepard? >> shepard: david lee, any indication that the diplomatic effort is making any difference? >> not very much on the ground. not far from where i'm standing, in fact, there are troops and tanks who are poised to move into gaza. how much of this is leverage at the negotiating table
in egypt, still at the funeral and with family. he was not expected to be back in cairo to make an announcem t announcement. it was something that would probably come out of the egyptian intelligence service which has been negotiating intensity. egypt's president mohamed morsi is from the muslim brother hood. it's unlike he he has been involved in negotiations with the israeli side. the only people that could negotiate between the israelis and meet with hamas and other palestinian factions are probably the intelligence agencies there. that's where we understand the negotiations to still be ongoing. there's an outlined agreement, but nobody has signed the paper. that's why i think people here are still very apprehensive this could be the final hurdle. you're talking about the presence or the arrival of u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton. there is no doubt the u.s. can play a very important role in this. it can exert a tremendous amount of leverage on the israelis to avoid a ground invasion of the gaza strip. while the u.s. does believe that israel has a right too defend its
leader of hamas told reporters in cairo hamas will not stop launching rockets until israel stops its bombing campaign and ends the blockade of gaza. he also said israel is bluffing and won't send troops into gaza. israeli officials say that's no bluff. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >> we have live pictures of gaza city skyline now. all is quiet right now. one of hamas' top military commanders is urging the group's fighters to continue its attack on israel. he is in hiding but spoke on hamas-run tv and radio. he was wounded during an israeli air strike in 2003. >>> four men are under arrest in southern california. the fbi says they conspired to kill americans overseas and in the u.s. and plan to join al qaeda and the taliban. one suspect is a 34-year-old man who served in the us air force in 2000 and 2001. authorities say he tried to arrange for two california men to meet his contacts with terror organizations. >> a man whose watch set off a bomb scare at the oakland airport won't face charges. the toggle switch, fuses and wires apparently raised some alarms. deputies arrested
to meet with leaders in jerusalem as well as cairo and ramallah. few details have been provided in a news conference an hour ago. >> we are all hoping for a deescalation and we are all hoping for restoration of calm, and we are all hoping to open space, for deeper, broader conversations. >> now, the death and the destruction caused by the crisis stretches across both borders. more than 100 confirmed killed in gaza. four in israel including an israeli soldier who died in a rocket strike today. we want to get more from nbc correspondent, ayman mohyeldin, who joins me from gaza. you reached out to the egyptian authorities about what's taking place, when this deal will be announced. what are you hearing about the possibility of that happening this hour? >> well, right now what we're hearing from egyptian officials is that they're still working to finalize that agreement. there are some areas where the gap between the two sides has been narrowed, but there are still some very important issues that have not been addressed. you know, we are talking about trying to solve one of the most complex i
that are the cease fire talks going on inside cairo and obviously secretary of state hillary clinton's visit here over the next 24 to 36 hours may delay a ground invasion. the question is, is it enough to actually get a cease fire deal on the table and signed between hamas jihad, and israel here on the other side. guys? >> steve: a lot of moving parts. what do you know about apparently earlier today an employee at the u.s. embassy in tel aviv was apparently stabbed by somebody. what's up with that? >> exactly. what it appears to be is that a local jewish man here, an israeli was upset h a personal beef with someone who was a local employee of the embassy and as though you would go to any workplace and try to take out your anger there at the person who happened to be working there, that's what happened. it seems unrelated to anything having to do with the united states. the embassy a coincidence that the man was so angry with was a guard there. thankfully fort guard, there were other people who subdued the attacker. but totally unrelated to things going on here or for that matter, the u.s. embassy
. and finally, she'll head to cairo. you'll recall, it was the egyptian president, mohamed morsi, who has been spearheading these peace talks, these truce talks between hamas and israel. so, there's a lot behind closed doors. there's a concerted effort to end this conflict diplomatically, rather than escalating the violence. rob and paula, back to you. >> lama, israel says they're prepared to invade and use a ground game. are they still ready to do so? >> reporter: oh, absolutely. we've been seeing tens of thousands of israeli troops and tanks, massing at the border. they say they are ready to go in, once they get the green light, if they get the green light, that is. but what we do know this, the israeli cabinet had a lengthy meeting, a four-hour meeting overnight, they were not going to ground operations just yet. but the aim of their operation, which is called center of defense, is aim of that is to stop the rockets flying from hamas and gaza, and heading towards southern israeli cities, like ashkelon and ashdod. so, that is the aim. if that does not stop. prime minister benjamin netanyahu

're not clear of what hamas thinks. listening to them speaking in cairo, there was agreed deal of spin for the domestic audience that their goals have been achieved achieved, their victorious. perhaps he was laying the groundwork. that is not clear. but if there is no cease-fire, an escalation is almost certain. >> thank you for your report. please be careful. will the israel/bozell conflict escalated to a ground war? let us know what you think or follow me on twitter. tensions in the mideast driving mikasa of $90 a barrel to keep you apprised of the latest. the pipeline that will bring gas to their key ally and construction will be finished by the second half of 2013. drivers may get some relief at the pump, the national average has dropped by more than 1/4 at $3.41. aaa estimates millions will hit the road for the weekend. going ahead first to the cliff. we have one of reagan's top economic advisers. with the three things a bombast to do twos save us. >> who killed america's sweetest cowboy? i say it is the union. somebody will disagree. coming up. ♪ lissa:y, w some newsbr melissa:
